Significant level of I-131 detected from dry sludge of Fukushima sewage plant after rain in May

Funny I was just mentioning about this on our Facebook group Rainbow Warriors  in some comments a couple of days ago, that Iodine-131 had been repeatedly found in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and possibly as well in 2015, proving that there is still something constantly fissioning there unstopped since March 2011, and of course this something is not releasing only Iodine-131 into the air but also Cesium-134 and other radionuclides as well.... 
Significant density of I-131 was detected from dry sludge of Fukushima sewage plant this May. Cs-134 was also detected.
According to Fukushima sewage public corporation, 2 days after rain (26.5 mm) observed on 5/19/2015, Iodine-131 level started jumping up along with Cs-134/137 density.
It kept on being detected until the end of May. The highest reading was 794.4 Bq/Kg (5/23/2015). 113 Bq/Kg of Cesium-134/137 was also measured this day.
It is assumed that the rain carried I-131 from somewhere to the sewage plant, however Fukushima prefectural government has announced no analysis on this.
The data on June is not published yet.
